Deciding between my turbo twists or 993 Cup 2s

I have both 17x7.5 front and 17x9 rear, Trying to decided which ones I am going to put good tires on. I am also lowering the front another inch or so.





Poke??

Go cup3, and remove the turn signals from the front fenders. They break the lines of the car imho.
OH! And give me your pop-out windows! :P

Those are cup 1s you've got on the back, not 2s...

to me it's more about stance, like which ones fit or don't fit directly under the fender

Hi

I like them both, I had 3 piece Cup 1s on my old 1302.

Are they both genuine Porsche wheels? I think some of the replica ones would be heavy

cup 1 would be nice on your car, original 18s turbo twist would look nice with fat fenders. But its really what you like.

They are both reps, I know they're really heavy, both are the same offset and sizes. 17x9 rears and 17x7.5 fronts

SteveC those 3 piece cup ones look amazing, that's a great looking car.

Hi

Thanks, they were Japanese copies, very lightweight and made by Superlight, 17x8s on the front and 17x9s on the rear, my new 1303 will have the same Aero fenders again.
